Friday, a nice magazine, a scented candle and the best hair brush you can get. Not to forget, harmony and some red wine. Happy weekend! Photo: Mia Linnman

Friends & Founders

Take a look at this lovely design company, Friends & Founders. Founded in 2013 by the designers Ida Linea and Rasmus Hildebrand. The studio is situated in the north of Copenhagen and 95 % of the collection is manufactured in Scandinavia and the rest 5 % in Europe. I just love all of it! This planting pot is on the top of my wishlist. Photo: Friends & Founders.

Finally I have updated my web with some recent work. Abstraction "Twilight", 150x120 cm.


Some days ago I visited Vallastaden, an urban living expo held between September 2-24 in Linköping, Sweden. The mix of detached houses, terrace houses, apartment buildings, student housing and commercial spaces was really inspiring. One of my favorite chairs in the top picture by Jean Prouvé. Photo: Mia Linnman

I guess I have a little "post-vacation-depression". I'm already missing summer, the easy living and all the inspiration that comes with traveling. I guess I have to focus on all good things with fall. Photo by  Melanie Lyon and Ramon Escobosa from the album "A place in the sun".

Vacation mix

Back to work again, lucky me to have a job that I love. These pics from last week in France (Biarritz) and Spain (San Sebastian and Rioja) feels already distant but keeps me inspired. Hope you have or have had a lovely vacation too. Photo: Mia Linnman.

I still like picture walls but right now I'm in a restructuring kind of phase. We have a lot of framed stuff just leaning against the wall, waiting to be a part of a nice combination of art. This view is from our bedroom. I'll come back later to show other rooms and the result of the change.

In nice company!

I'm very proud to be part of this quite new design book by Dorothea Gundtoft "New nordic design"
In the chapter "International voices" I'm accompanied by some of my absolute favorites; Kinfolks Nathan Williams, Paul Smith, Ilse Crawford and many talented colleagues in the design- and blog business like Allan Torp, Catherien Lazure-Guinard and Samantha Denisdóttir.

"New Nordic Design is not only a comprehensive guide to Nordic designers practicing today but also a source of minimalist inspiration. Profiles of ten influential Nordic designers complement illustrated profiles of fifty contemporary interior and product designers alongside interviews conducted by Dorothea Gundtoft. "

To travel is one of the most stimulating and fun things you can do if you ask me. It's inspiring, energizing and in the same time relaxing. But after some weeks on the road it's always nice to get back home. Found this lovely magazine "Crash" in france with amazing Susan Sarandon on the cover. Photo: Mia Linnman.

We have spent two weeks at our favorite vacation-spot; the most lovely hotel Le Normandy Barriere in Deauville, France. Sunny days with tennis, golf, food and wine. What can make you more relaxed and happy than beautiful places and easy living? Hope you have a great time too! Photo: Mia Linnman.

There is almost nothing more swedish than midsummer. This year we spent it with friends on the west-coast with boat excursions, flowers, early potatoes, all kinds of herring and cold beer. What more do you need than happy, nice company and great food?
Now I'm looking forward to holiday, just a few days left. See u soon!
